In conjunction with Holocaust Remembrance Observance, Sag Harbor resident Rob Calvert will exhibit his six-piece topical series at Temple Adas Israel Gallery Space in Sag Harbor. Ann Chwatsky’s selection for this year’s exhibition marks the first opportunity to see these works. The exhibit will open with a wine and cheese reception on April 28 from 5 -7 pm and will run through May. The public is invited.
Calvert made the assemblages in response to his 2016 visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland to bear witness to the Holocaust. Overwhelmed by the visit, he writes, “My need was not to erase, correct or undo things but to respond with measure equal to the experience.”
The synagogue and gallery are located at the corner of Atlantic Ave. and Elizabeth St., Sag Harbor. The gallery is open by arrangement. Call the Temple at (631) 725-0904. For more information, email Eileen Moskowitz at email@example.com
